Lawlor, White & Murphey Has Demonstrated Track Record Of Recovering Just Compensation For Personal Injury Accidents In Davie, Florida 

Personal injury law protects those individuals who have been harmed in accidents that were the result of another person’s negligent actions. Negligence is the basis for all personal injury claims, and the reckless behavior that caused or contributed to the accident must be proven. When there is an accident and someone can be held legally responsible for the accident, personal injury law provides a process for the injured party to recover compensation. 

The injured victim may file a personal injury claim in the Florida courts, seeking to recover compensation for the accident injuries and other losses, known as “damages”. The compensation recovered in a personal injury claim is not designed to punish the at-fault party; it is intended to compensate the injured victim in an effort to restore that individual to the condition they were in prior to the accident.

Injured parties may recover any of the following damages which are the result of their accident:

  • Medical bills
  • Hospital bills
  • Surgical costs
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Prescription medications
  • Anticipated future medical expenses that are a result of the accident
  • Loss of income  
  • Loss of earned sick time
  • Loss of earned vacation time
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of one’s life enjoyment

Lawlor, White & Murphey is a results-oriented personal injury law firm with a demonstrated track record of recovering just compensation for personal injury accident victims. 

Rules For Shared Fault In Personal Injury Accidents In Davie, Florida 

In personal injury cases where more than one party is responsible for the accident, Florida follows what is known as “pure comparative negligence rules”. Under these rules, the compensation that the injured party may recover will be reduced by a level that reflects their shared fault for the accident. For example, if It is determined that the injured person is 25 percent responsible for the accident, then their damage award will be reduced by 25 percent. So — in this scenario — a damage award of $20,000 will be reduced by $5,000 for a total compensation of $15,000.

If you are unsure of whether your accident meets the criteria of negligence, it is best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who will evaluate the merits of your particular personal injury case.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims In Davie, Florida

FAQ: What are the legal deadlines for filing a personal injury claim in Florida?

Every state has different legal deadlines for filing claims in civil court, known as “statutes of limitations”. In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is four years from the date that the accident took place. This is a significant deadline. If you do not file your claim within this four-year window, then the Florida court will likely dismiss your case. Should this happen, then you will have lost your opportunity to recover any compensation for your accident.

FAQ: What should I do if I have been hurt in an accident that was someone else’s fault?

While all accidents are different, there are several steps to take in the aftermath of an accident. First, in the case of a car accident or an accident with serious injuries, report the accident to the police. Seek emergency medical attention for your injuries. Take photos of the accident scene and your physical injuries, and obtain the contact information from the other at-fault party and any witnesses to the accident.
